Alyson Keeling has joined Aspida as its new Assistant Company Secretary.
She joins from previous roles as a teacher, a head of department and an administrator in the finance industry.
Ms Keeling is also a Douzenier for Forest.
She said changing career was not easy, but opened up new opportunities for her.
“It was a huge step as I was an established head of department with great relationships with both students and colleagues, and I did not have the office experience that many employers wanted,” she said.
“However, I was very fortunate that a small office needed someone to carry out admin on a temporary contract and were happy to take me on… as I gained experience my interest grew, I embarked on the CGI Qualifying Programme and moved to Aspida to develop my skills and knowledge.
“Being a CoSec can be demanding as you need to be very organised, efficient and pro-active but the variety of the work means that every day is different. The team are incredibly supportive and so generous with their time and knowledge.
Head of the Company Secretarial Service, Lezanne Kretschmer added: “Aly is truly a rising star and a valued member of the CoSec team and wider Aspida family. Her friendly, professional, responsive, and engaged approach is highly appreciated. A career in corporate governance is a great fit for Aly and we are very happy to support her development to reach her full potential and beyond."
